Alan Keyes Joins Illinois Senate Race
Illinois Republicans Turn to Conservative Maryland Political Commentator

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (Aug. 8) - Alan Keyes, the conservative Maryland political commentator whom Illinois Republicans turned to after weeks of searching for a replacement Senate candidate, accepted the challenge Sunday of running against a rising Democratic star who has grown only more formidable as the state GOP has been mired in scandal and disarray.
AP
The GOP party offered Keyes, a two-time presidential candidate, the nomination for the U.S. Senate, replacing Jack Ryan.
''We do face an uphill battle, there's no doubt,'' Keyes told cheering supporters at a rally.
''So I'm not going to stand here and with tremendous ease promise you a victory. But I'll tell you what I will promise. I will promise you a fight!''
The Republican two-time presidential hopeful will face Democratic state Sen. Barack Obama in the campaign to replace retiring GOP Sen. Peter Fitzgerald. Keyes' entry sets up the first U.S. Senate election with two black candidates representing the major parties, and seemingly assures Illinois will produce only the fifth black senator in history.

Being liberal as I am, I am for Obama. Read further on in the article and you will find out that Keyes is against abortion and gay rights, I have mixed feelings on abortion but I do believe strongly in gay rights. Keyes is against state income taxes, and it's no wonder. According to the article he owes over $7,000 in unpaid income taxes. From what I've read Keyes doesn't seem to pose a threat of any sort to Obama. Obama is a great speaker, and he actually puts into motion the things he talks about. His speech at the Democratic National Convention was great.

    During my daily masochism (watching Fox News) today, I saw an interview with Keyes in which that quote was brought up, and he simply said "let me say what I want to say" (paraphrasing), and of course, the Republican lapdogs let him off the hook. Keyes is nowhere near the speaker and energizer that Obama is, and he's already running a negative campaign. Contrast this with Obama's unifying speeches and you've got Keyes handily defeated.
